Lost & Found / Willard - Lost nut tool, found biner with prusik cord
« Last post by rbirk on August 14, 2017, 12:11:41 PM »
We climbed Sunday on Mt Willard. My partner dropped her nut tool and it bounced down the cliff and probably lost deep in the woods under the bushes/leaves never to be found again. It's a nice nut tool with built in biner. Anyway, not a biggie, but you never know when someone stumbles across it.

I did however come across a biner with an attached prusik cord. The biner has initials on it. I have it in case someone would like it back.

Always a good idea  :-\

Tc and I started a very serious climb just before his wedding, got hailed off Cannon.

Condemned man  11B R  rp#0, rp #1, tied off KB and a #3 friend... you should finish it

Does anyone have any information on this route? Was it ever completed and where is it?? Once in a while I bump into TC in Metrorock but I have a reason to try and get info on this without asking him.

Too bad the corner isnt longer, otherwise it would be classic.  As for the crack super awesome position with some fun climbing at an easy grade.  It may need some more scrubbing but it should be climbable.  Id like to get the first pitch scrubbed as well.

General Climbing / Looking to share a ride from RI to Rumney this weekend
« Last post by laidback on August 11, 2017, 10:31:12 AM »
Hi North East Climbers

My wife and I are over in the US visiting family in Smithfield RI. We are keen to get out to Rumney for a bit of climbing as I hear it is really good. We're looking for a ride from the Smithfield general area up to Rumney either Saturday 12th August or Sunday 13th August. Happy to cover the fuel cost, and maybe team up for the climbing too, although we are self sufficient in terms of gear.

We would be looking to stay the whole week and come back next weekend 19th August, so probably just a one way ride for most weekend warriors.

If you're interested in saving some fuel money and meeting foreign climbers or if you need a partner (safe belaying and solid leaders up to mid 5.12) give me a shout, whatsapp +2782five7five3929 or email allendavidstill(at)

Second pitch of goofers delight has been cleaned.  Rap to the belay anchor for tabu (which was replaced last fall).  As per Jerry's book: traverse out right in the crack until a corner.  Finish up the corner. (5.8 )  As per Ed's book, continue following the crack out right to the top of the cliff. (5.6)  If doing Eds version, the crack/flake does flex near the top.  Expect some lichen/dirt, but will clean up eventually.  Should be a nice and easier option on the top of the buttress.  The  newly cleaned lined is obvious from the lookout as well as the picnic table.  Have at it.
Lost & Found / Cathedral Ledge - Lost shoes at the base

I seem to have lost a pair of approach shoes at the base of Cathedral Ledge, NH.  I was parked across the stree from the cliff in one of the main pullouts.  If you you found them, I'd appreaciate a message.  Thanks!

Last year I purchased the complete  set from volume 1 to the present for 20$ at a yard sale in northern NH. The early volumes have some amazing stuff in them!

Back then, it was THE SOURCE!

Awesome yard sale find!
